I am married to my wonderful wife Jacquie. Have 2 kids, Cody and Britta. I retired from the Air Force after 22 years. I got interested in woodworking ( about 16 years ago) when I saw a scroll saw pattern and thought it looked like fun. I wouldn't describe my first several projects as fun, but it grew on me and with a little reading and a lot of practice I finally figured it out. After that, I convinced my young and very gullible wife that with a few tools I could build her a curio cabinet. I am happy to say that she has many of my projects in the house. I am ashamed to say none are a curio cabinet. Now, when I say i could build that with the right tools, she just rolls her eyes at me. One day I will surprise her with one. Retirement shadow boxes keep me busy lately. I have visited LJ's quite a bit lately and finally decided to join. I love looking at all of the projects that are posted and the help that everyone is willing to give is great. I look forward to being a part of this!
